Where to Stay

Accommodation options in the French Riviera are as diverse as its destinations. From the glamour of Monaco to the rustic charm of Grasse, here's a guide to where to stay during your Riviera getaway.

For a family holiday

Families would do well to centre their holiday in Nice, boasting family-friendly attractions, beautiful beaches, and a pedestrian-friendly old town. Alternatively, consider Antibes for its beautiful sandy spots and child-friendly activities like the Marineland animal exhibition park.

For a couples holiday

For couples, the romantic air of Saint-Paul-de-Vence or the glamorous sheen of Cannes makes for memorable holidays. Stunning views and quiet corners are aplenty, perfect for intimate shared moments.

For a holiday with friends

Whether your group seeks vibrant nightlife or cultural depth, Nice is a fantastic option. Between bars on the beach to a myriad of museums, the city offers something for everyone. Saint-Tropez, with its glamorous beach clubs and vibrant nightlife scene, is another fantastic option for a friends holiday.

When to Visit

Riviera bliss is at its finest from April to October. The mid-summer months can see bigger crowds and increased prices, but also presents the Riviera in full sun-soaked splendour. Spring and Autumn, however, remain warm and sunny, with fewer crowds, making it a great time to visit for a more relaxed feel. Keep in mind that winter, despite the occasional chill, can still serve up that distinct Riviera charm for a fraction of the usual costs, although some seasonal businesses may close. Ultimately, the French Riviera’s allure remains steadfast throughout the year.
